Dear Robin Williams

 

Robin Williams was one of those people I always hoped I would meet one day. I am so sad at the loss of this man with the utterly unique zany sense of humor. If I’d been famous or a neighbor or run across him in a perfectly natural setting one day, I think we would have been friends. Probably most people felt this way about him and that is why we were all so crazy about him. People like this sometimes don’t know that they are genuinely loved—or at least can’t believe it. If that were not true, then it would mean that in the end, fame and being loved and being a genius wasn’t enough. We are all so complex—thinking the others have the answers when really we are all trying to work it out for ourselves. Dear Robin Williams, I didn’t know you except through your genius, but from my point of view, you were one of the world’s treasures and I for one am going to miss not having you in it.

(Somehow, this post just seemed to belong with this daily prompt.  I’d already posted one post, but I’m now posting this one as well. )

      Robin was and will always be a gem to me I also wished I could have met him too. What I gift he had to all who were saddened for whatever their journey through life they had, he brought laughter and joy. GOD BLESS YOU ROBIN AND REST IN PEACE YOUR A GIFT TO HUMANITY WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED.

    Yes, Judy, I think the whole world will be in mourning. I was so stunned when I heard that he was gone. What an incredible talent. Tony and Meghan and I were fortunate to see him in Chicago when he came back to performing live after being absent from the stage for a number of years. We screamed with laughter (you can imagine) for the whole performance and our sides still ached the next day. I wish he had been able to have the joy in his life that he brought to the lives of others. Loving thoughts to you, Robin, your talents, your genius, your incredible uniqueness will always be treasured in our hearts. Thank you for being the wonderful you that you were.
